Program Manager at TechStars
Startupbootcamp FinTech Singapore Mentor
Ash has managed operations and business development for accelerator programs and advised 1000+ edtech founders, mentors, and strategic partners in the US and Asia over 4+ years. Currently, he does so by managing the edtech program at Techstars, which provides up to $170,000 in seed funding, intensive mentorship, and a network of mentors and alumni for equity in a company. In previous startup lives he’s failed to scale a food mobility service and a risky driving prevention platform, and identified a sustainable business model for a social learning platform for Fortune 500 executives while working at the Executive Board and a global career conference for international workers and multinational companies while getting his MBA at Georgetown University. Prior to that, he worked at Citibank, Morgan Stanley, and Smith Barney. After growing up in Sri Lanka, he’s always been a fan of competing in rugby and cricket matches rather than watching them.
